Causes:

  • Chemical burns
  • Thermal burns
  • Trauma or damage to mucous membrane

Ulcers may appear at any time or place in the mouth. The few most common spots ulcers form.

  • Corner of the mouth
  • Upper and lower lip
  • Floor of the mouth
  • Both sides or below the tongue
  • On the cheeks beside the molar teeth

Appearance

-Ulcers may appear as a indurated base surrounded by a red halo and is usually covered by a mucous membrane

-Ulcers usually heal in a span of 2 to 3 weeks and without any scarring to the normal tissues in the oral cavity

Treatments

To treat ulcers,Β 

  • Maintain good oral hygiene by brushing teeth and using mouthwashes
  • Avoid hot, spicy and sour foods while the ulcer is healing
  • Apply gels or medication on to the ulcer 3 times a day to prevent any secondary infection (some gels contain painkiller properties and can be obtained at any local pharmacy)

Got a bridge and implant done by Dr Jon this year. Still holding up, looking forward to next and hopefully final treatment for missing tooth. Flexible payment terms and polite staff. Give them a try if you haven’t.

Having great experience so far. The doctor are very attentive and explain things very thoroughly without pushing for unncesssary treatment. The clinic is well lit and very cleanπŸ‘πŸ‘. It is on the first and second so it will be a bit hard if you have a bad leg.

Surveyed few dentists before I decided to do my wisdom tooth surgery here. Very good service by Dr Edwin who was very gentle throughout the procedure. Most importantly, it was painless. Had good experience with the follow-up sessions too and hope to receive the same experience in my next visit. The nurses and receptionists are very welcoming and friendly. Thumbs up for the good service and the will definitely come again.
